How often should I change my transmission fluid?
Many manufactures recommend changing the filter and fluid in an automatic transmission every two years or 24,000 miles.You should consult your manual for the exact specification for your vehicle.
What goes wrong with the existing fluid?
Over thirty percent of automatic transmission problems are the result of fluid breakdown.Automatic transmission fluid is not just a lubricant; it plays a major role in transferring power from the engine to the drive wheels and tires.Under normal operation, heat and friction breakdown the fluid causing oxidation and the buildup of acids.The result is the formation of varnish and sludge inside the transmission.This varnish and sludge can plug vital passages within the transmission and can lead to torque converter shudder or shifting problems.
How does Wilderness Auto Service make it right?
Conventional transmission service leaves two thirds of the original fluid in the transmission.Remaining residues can cause malfunctions and possibly complete failure of the automatic transmission.A trained Wilderness Auto Service technician will flush your transmission using fluid exchange equipment that removes all of the old worn out fluid.Cleaning agents used during the exchange process remove sludge, varnish build-up and deposits, effectively cleaning the inside of your transmission and torque converter.When complete, your automatic transmission should function as if it were new.
